Explanation: I remember this term being used by my parents. Wikipedia offers the following entry: "term that refers to cheeses or precooked or cured meat, often sausages or meat loaves, that are sliced and usually served cold on sandwiches or on party trays. They can be bought pre-sliced in vacuum packs at a supermarket or grocery store, or they can be purchased at a delicatessen or deli counter, where they might be sliced to order." Wiki calls it a US term, but I believe it is or used to be common in the UK as well.
